timeouts

my elderly twin has been working on extending the timeout in asp.net so users don't get prompted to log in so frequently. after donking with all the silly xml config files and googling the bejeezers out of this topic, including much manual testing, he came across the magic forms authentication timeout xml attribute. so, dear reader, this nonsense wasn't caused by session timeout, but by authentication timeout. apparently, every single anything has a separate timeout setting tweakable from xml.
